WATERLOO (KWWL)--Police have arrested a registered sex offender who left while on work release.

Waterloo officers say they received a tip that Kenneth Spore was at a home on Manitoba Avenue. They found him Sunday night.

Right now, Spore is being held at the Black Hawk County Jail without bond.

In 1999, Spore was sentenced to ten years in prison for robbery. In June, he was placed on work release.

Officials say Spore left for his job and failed to return to the Waterloo residential facility last week.

A 1994 conviction listed him as a registered sex offender.
